dude its paid…

i want open source stuff

yeh there are some mods available so you can integrate Fluxbb etc with it i guess, i am using it for my College community, started back in May, previously i had social engine 3.x but now using 4.x, it need a little higher resources though. Like VPS or dedicated thingy.

I suggest phpbb or smf. Both are free and popular.

Well they don’t give a heck about it.

guys i m thinking of going with SOCIAL ENGINE integrated with Vbulliten..

any other suggestions wud be pretty appreciated...

I think we should do some thing new and some thing that has its uniqueness social networking is kind ov dead right now. whats next.

joomla , keuna , community builder , hwdmediashare ( for videos ) , joomgallery is all you need my friend :)

Sir use correct name of the university. Its NUCES. FAST is history.

Just use regular fluxBB. If you get into issues then the forum mods can gladly help you.
